After 88 degrees one day, the front came in, temps dropped and rain fell from the sky here in San Antonio. 1.1 inches overnight, in a windy, thunder & lightning filled show. We just don’t get many good thunderstorms in Alaska, so at least it was something different to wake up to.
I took the Rover out to Lost Maples Natural Area today, for a little run. A beautiful drive through the hill country and a nice hike along the Sabinal River. I should say that the drive back was beautiful, since I couldn’t see anything on the drive out due to the pouring rain and thumping hail. That little wiper on the Rover was having a hard time keeping up.
The pic above is “Monkey Head”, which is just a short side trail trek off the East Trail in Lost Maples. Above were some golden eagles soaring the thermals, but that photo didn’t do them justice.
The picture I took of the 20 vultures on the javelina carcass was quite vivid, however. So stay tuned!
